Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The main idea behind quilt designer Ford's (ScrapTherapy Cut the Scraps!) popular ScrapTherapy system is that if your fabric scraps are pre-cut into commonly used sizes and organized by color, you'll be more likely to use them. To give quilters the impetus to tackle their scraps, Ford presents 20 more projects that use squares in the three basic ScrapTherapy sizes (5 inches, 3.5 inches, and 2 inches), along with one added fabric that doesn't have to be a scrap. Most of the projects in the book are full-size quilts, and Ford proves once again that scrappy quilts don't have to look like a color explosion. VERDICT Quilters who have overflowing scrap bins may balk at all of the precutting involved (one of the super-scrappy quilts involves 1,072 two-inch squares), but this volume is an excellent choice for quilters of all skill and interest levels.
